12:06 am
>> dicky: and now, places, everybody! here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming to become my friend. and let me just say this, i want you all to know you're all my new best friends. but you'll never see me again. i'm going to miss him the most. he was laid off recently. this is crazy. the other night, you know, you may have heard charlie sheen showed up and kissed me right on the lips. and it was a big story because everything charlie sheen does is a big story. and none of us know where libya is, so --
12:07 am
[ laughter ] some people thought it was funny, some people thought it was weird. at least one people were so disturbed by this turn of events that he grabbed a gun and menaced his family. >> charlie sheen surprised the audience at "jimmy kimmel live" and even the host himself when he showed up at the talk show and planted a big kiss on kimmel. the clip has played over and over but when the replay aired in this home, it engaged 47-year-old david o'hara. he and his girlfriend were flipping through the channels before they went to bed last night and the smoosh set him off. his girlfriend didn't want to be on camera, but told us our her innocent channel changing went wrong. >> we getting ready to get into bed and going through the television, i seen that and i said, look at that man how he kissing that man. he kissing that man like he kissing a woman, and he just snapped. i don't want to see [ bleep ]. >> a group of friends heard the
12:08 am
screams and went to check on the couple. that's when sheriff steve newton says o'hara got a gun, putting it to the back of his girlfriend's head. his girlfriend says he had been drinking before his violent outburst and believes his prior stint in prison has made him sensitive to homosexual behavior. >> jimmy: with women it's okay. wow, that's -- i'm guessing -- [ applause ] i'm guessing probably not much of a "glee" fan either. i feel kind of bad that i caused such a problem. now he's going back to jail to be man molested again or whatever happened. i should send him something to make up for this. you know, maybe i'll ask jake gyllenhaal to sign a copy of "brokeback mountain." that should do the trick. by the way, if you feel the urge to terrorize your family with a gun after watching our family, please call our hotline. counselors are standing by. speaking of shows that make you want to get a gun, since you're here, i'll assume you didn't watch "american idol" tonight?
12:09 am
i did. i like to think i watch it so that you don't have to. it was motown night. also known as whitey ruins motown night. this isn't the first time they've had motown night. seasons one, two and eight the top ten did motown songs in season three, the top 12 did. tonight, it was the top 11 singing motown. you can see, they've really reinvented themselves. one of the more notable contestants this season is a young guy named scott. he's the country singer with richie cunningham's face and darth vader's voice. ♪ don't go riding on that long black train ♪ >> jimmy: the voice doesn't fit the face. this voice coming out of him to me would make a lot more sense. ♪ there's victory in the lord i say ♪ ♪ victory in the lord
12:10 am
>> jimmy: sounds like he should sound like kermit, right? tomorrow night, one singer will be eliminated. it's tough to get the boot before the top ten, because no one will remember you. we have enough troubling remembering who won. who won it last year? lee didn't win. did lee win? he did? i thought chris allen won. see, no one knows what the hell is going on. someone really needs to open an all-rejected "american idol" contestant singing waiter restaurant. they sing, come around. instead of sending people home, ryan seacrest just gives him his order. ch chantal, you're going home. can i get a salad? steven tyler didn't disappoint. it wouldn't be a wednesday without it. it's time for steven tyler's creepy leer of the night. >> you know, you're 15,
12:11 am
16-year-olds old, 16 now, okay, i don't expect you to have all the life experience -- >> jimmy: when he hears the word teen, it sets off a reaction. this is good. this is another singer named paul mcdonald. listen, he's singing the song "the tracts of my tears" whi. tell me what word you hear him sing. ♪ i need you baby ♪ i'm -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: let's listen to that one more time. ♪ i'm -- >> jimmy: he's definitely spending too much time around steven tyler. more trouble on the set of the broadway musical "ciderman." they lost the show's lead actress, she got hurt during a battle scene. it's now the second-leading cause of death in america.
12:12 am
this is the fifth cast member to be injured since the show started production. you know, i hate to say i told you so, but you know, if they listen, i told them they should do this in the ball pit at chuck e. cheese. we could have avoided all of this. the producers of the show are scrambling, trying everything they can to fix the show by putting more of the focus on what so far has been working best. >> this summer, broadway's most talked about musical reinvented with a new look, new director, new choreographer and all new songs from bono and the edge. songs like "oh my god i think that it's fractured. " ♪ oh my god ♪ i think that it's fractured ♪ ow ♪ ow ♪ ow >> and you'll love "i just fell four stories onto an old woman. ♪ i just fell four stories onto an old woman ♪
12:13 am
>> call ticketmaster today for "spider-man, call an ambulance." >> jimmy: you can see in the footage, he falls off the platform, that's part of the thing. they really need to cancel this thing already and get bono back to doing what he does best, which is providing people in third world countries with wraparound sunglasses. president obama has been in latin america this week, but he had to cut his trip short today because of the situation in libya and also to check his ncaa bracketses he's doing very well. moammar gadhafi has been defiant in the face of u.s. missile strikes. he's latching at hem. >> translator: we are making fun of their rockets. the libyans are latchi ilaughin these rockets. >> jimmy: that's the kind of thing that daffy duck says before he gets hit with a missi missile. how can you make fun of anything when you've been photographed wearing this hat? you can't.
12:14 am
like something lady gaga would eat oatmeal out of. i'm still not sure how to play gadhafi's name. sometimes it starts with a g, sometimes with a k, sometimes with a q. it would be nice if we -- we are bombing, we need to settle on a spelling the guy is the hanukkah of dictators, you know? elsewhere in the middle east, iran had a scientific breakthrough. they claim to have built a flying saucer. that's right. it's an aircraft called zohal, which means saturn in english. it's an unmanned spaceship. it's either a flying saucer or someone heimliched a falafel after lunch. they made some huge leaps in the 30 years since they've discovered fire in iran. but do we believe iran has invented a flying saucer? if that's true, why is everyone in this country still driving a late '70s pugot? peta, the people for animals,
12:15 am
they got naked in public here on hollywood boulevard yesterday. you may have seen it if you're in the neighborhood. and when anyone takes off their clothes in public, our local news crews are right there. >> naked inside a makeshift shower, peta beauties are bearing it all to promote a vegan lifestyle. they're distrabcting drivers on hollywood boulevard. >> jimmy: dallas cowboys wide receiver dez bryant had a run-in at the mall on saturday. he was ejected from a dallas-area mall and given a criminal trespass warning after they stopped him for wearing pants that were too low to the ground. he was at the mall visiting his mom, lane bryant, and -- he claims that it wasn't his pants, he goes kicked out because his friend's pants were too low.
12:16 am
some of the shoppers say you could clearly see his cinnabons and his baby gap. maybe he was at the mall to buy a belt? i mean, really. this is great. now the players are getting locked out of malls. it's -- they've got to get these guys back on the field already. though, i tell you what, it is kind of refreshing to hear a story about an nfl player without pants who isn't brett favre. and -- one more thing. you know, you remember that soccer announcer, a few years ago that yelled goal for 4:30 straight until he passed out unconscious? well, this is from a professional basketball game in spa spain. this team beat real madrid in overtime which caused the announcer to become very, very emotional. [ speaking foreign language ]
12:17 am
[ speaking foreign language ] [ laughter ] >> what does this mean? oh, my god, what does it mean? tell me. >> jimmy: i wonder if the double rainbow guy knows he's got a voice twin in spain? [ applause ] we've got a good show for you tonight. that young man, an 11-year-old guitar player, his name is quinn sullivan, he's here with us. hollywood legend jerry weintraub is with us. and we'll be right back with jake gyllenhaal, so stick around.

>> sort of. i mean -- >> jimmy: for me, i think the best way to describe it is, like, groundhog's day with terrorism. >> sounds like a blast, man. sounds like a blast. >> jimmy: you know that bill murray movie? >> yeah, it is a little bit like that. it's about a computer program that allows somebody to go into somebody else's body for the last eight minutes of their life. and my character is a helicopter pilot and he wakes up on a train. he had just remembered that he had been in afghanistan. he wakes up in somebody else's clothes, across from a woman, he doesn't know who she is. he's confused. he looks at his reflection and he sees it might not be his face. he goes to the bathroom to confirm and it sure enough, he's not in his own body. he's in somebody else's body. a couple minutes later, the train explodes. and so begins the journey of him trying to figure out, you know, it's a government program that he's been put into so it's him trying to figure out who bombed
12:38 am
the train, what is he doing there, why is he there and it's not just a who dun it, which is incredibly tense and engaging the whole time but it's big, huge question that ultimately the movie ends with. so, there are a lot of awesome things involved. >> jimmy: it really is good. after you insulted me earlier, i shouldn't say that. but it's very, very -- you should be very proud. >> the movie is wide. the movie is very wide movie. it's girthy and wide. so, i think you'd understand that. >> jimmy: it's in that wi widescreen format. >> if you like jimmy kimmel and how he dresses, you will like "source code." guaranteed. >> jimmy: i want to point out that you are on the cover of "men's journal" magazine. looking very serious. in this, i was looking at this interview, you take the writer to a restaurant, which is typical, but the restaurant you take him to is the ikea in
12:39 am
burbank. >> why is that funny? >> jimmy: you took him to a snack wbar. >> yeah, man, they have the best swedish meat balls in los angeles. not only that, i play my game right. with journalists, if you take them through the maze that is ikea, they won't even know what they're asking you. come on. but they are the best swedish meat balls around. >> jimmy: you're a big fan of foods, you're an aficionado of food. i hate to use the word foodie. it's a terrible word. when you go to a town, will you research the different foods beforehand -- >> jimmy, why are we playing this like this? come on, i'll ask you for references. >> jimmy: i'm not sure if i immediately thrust the suggestions on you. >> you did. because when i was shooting "source code" i came on the show and you said to me, if you're in montreal, you have to go to this

12:56 am
to being successful in this business, what is your secret? >> in our business? well, not wearing ties like that. the secret to my success is that i think the secret to my success is, i never hear the word "no." when i hear that, it means maybe. i get it to maybe. when i get it to maybe, then i get it to yes. so, i think that's the secret. and when i believe in something, any movie i ever believed in, all the ocean's movies, all the movies i did in my life, all the bands i was working with and so on, if people said to me, they stink, they're no good, that's a terrible idea for a movie, i never heard it. i just went ahead and did it. i just powered ahead and i got a yes. >> jimmy: you have maybe the most fascinating part, besides the business stuff, is your personal relationship and how you've managed that. because -- >> really?
12:57 am
>> jimmy: that is something else. you've got a wife and you've got a girlfriend and they're both perfectly fine with it. >> isn't that something? >> jimmy: that is something.
